Dark Tunnel

My scars aren't healing

They won't go away

Just another hurtful reminder

That I lived another day


Feeling numb, I keep on walking

My body holds me captive

Like I'm a prisoner in my own body

My self harming thoughts are always active


I sit alone in this dark room

My body hurts, my soul is aching

I don't know how much more I can take

With this smile, this laugh, it's all just faking


I just want to leave

I just want to go

It hurts too much to be here

Being alive is just another woe
